How the Harding ABSN Program Works

Harding University’s hybrid accelerated nursing program in Arkansas empowers you to leverage any bachelor’s degree into a career as a nurse. Our program for non-nurses makes it possible to earn a Bachelor of Science in nursing degree in as few as 16 months.

The ABSN curriculum requires a substantial amount of dedication and commitment to be successful and involves a comprehensive hybrid ABSN learning model that consists of three stages: online, hands-on labs, and clinical experience.

  • Accelerated online nursing courses build the foundation of your nursing education.
  • Skills and high-tech nursing simulation labs put your online accelerated nursing course knowledge into practice.
  • Clinical rotations provide diverse patient care experiences in a real-world environment.

Together, these three learning components prepare you to sit for the NCLEX-RN® licensure exam, so you’ll be able to call yourself a nurse and practice the profession in all types of health care settings.
